Is there anyway to do a silent install with SmartFTP ?? I need to include this program with my WinXP CD that is totally automated. I am going to have my regged SmartFTP copy installed along with some others of mine. The installer is a nullsoft installer.. I tried the /S switch which kinda helps out but I am still prompted to hit 'next' to continue the installation.

Are they are other switches I can use with SmartFTP to get the program and the license key installed silently?

Please post a reply SmartFTP moderator!!

Thank you

Jamie

Hello ...

You can use the MSI setup and the cab files for a silent installation. You shouldnt use the NSI (nullsoft) setup for this purpose.

Hey,

you mean the SFTPMSI.exe that you initially download for the installation? That even has an ICON for nullsoft.. please tell me if I should just extract it and what switches to use.

Thanks!

Hello ...

The SFTPMSI.exe or SFTPFull.exe is a NSI setup which extracts the files from the MSI setup. The MSI installation files are copied to c:Program FilesSmartFTP Setup Files
These are the files necessary for the MSI setup.
